The past year has clearlyand
most forcibly demonstraced that
it pays to be honest, both in public
and private life. In the wave of
unprecedented prosperity which
we have enjoyed as a nation dui"
ing; the past year men and'women
have lost sight of honesty, the
fundamental principle of success
ful business, and gone wild in
their eagerness for. wealth. To
su ch people the present unex
pected ripple in finance came like
a clap of thunder from a clear
sky, hence the individual, as well
as the-bankers of the coun
try who were indulging in
"ways that were dark and
tricks that were vain" were forced
to uncover their guilty heads and
receive that just condemnation
which is sure to the transgressor
either in this world or in the
world to come. ' ' ' ' :
Howv humiliating it must ce to
such people is evidenced by James
Hazen Hyde who robbed the Eq
uitable, Life Jnsurance Company
that he might live in luxury and
ease, who now as a fugitive from
justice and heart-broken, offers
to return $1,000,000 if the suits
against him could be dismissed
Our own Horace Greeley McKin
ley, now hunted, by relentless
"Uncle Sam" like a wild beast at
bayi would, no doubt, give all
his earthly possessions could he
once more look honest people in
the face, and with a clear con
science, lay his head upon the pil
low at night and rest in peace.
In pilded palaces in Portland
there perhaps are those who have
hada touch of "high life" .u.J
are repenting in disgrace.
The men wno thus betray pub
lic trust and confidence and rob
the widows and oroha.:3 of their
dependence 'ahvuld no be pitied,
nor should the man who gambles
or places his money on stock ex
change, for he certainly realizes
he expects to get something for
nothing. The men who run such
places should be ostracised by
society and punioued Ly law- A
public sentiment is rapidly grow:
ing to abolish the "Wall Street
Pit" and kindred places of cus
sedness. ' If the guilty alone reared for
their misdeeds it would not be so
tad, but the wife, mother, chil
dren, relatives and friends must
all suffer when the jail door opens
to receive tbem, and on down
through the paes of history we
1 are confronted with the testimony
of some father or brother gone
wrong. ' i. '
How different the man who
recognizes the claim - humanity,
society and his family has upon
him and in spite of opposition,
nay often persecution, he contin
ues in the . straight and narrow
way, striving honestly to do his
duty' to his" family, to his country
and to his God. How happy he
feels when the car s and anxiety
of the day are over and he goes
home to the bosom of his family,
tired but conscious that the
righteous shall be rewarded when
life's fitful dream is over.
Our people are to be congratu
lated that in this mad rush the
bankers and business men of the
country in general have acted
wisely and well by keeping with
i:i the pale of the law,, of decency
and sound business principles,
and on account cf these happy
conditions this country'of which
we are so justly proud has avert
ed a panic and stood as a monu
ment of strength and business
Perhaps these things may be
necessary, as object lessons to
vnun? men. admonishing them
to steer clear from the allure
ments of vice which are ever
near us.
Much has been said, from time
to time, deploring the almost
total lack; of manufacturing en
terprises in Oregon. : Time and
again this' thator the other thing
has been set forth as enterprises
in inunufacturing which might
be easily established and suc
cessfully conducted to the enrichment-of
those immediately
interested and the development
of Jhe natural resources of the
state. - - '
These things are usually pre
sented by men who know noth
ing of the conditions which must
attend the establishment of such
enterprises, " and' who have- not
been long enough time in the
state to learn what conditions do
exisc, and .what manufacturing
resources we really possess and
might safely and profitably de
velop. , -; ' .
' Assuming that capital stands
ready to lay ' hold of such pro
jects the moment the conditions
are such as give rational promise
of success; we may direct our in-i
quiries to the: conditions neces
sary to' successful manufacture
in?. . f . " "-; ' "' -
; Cheap Taw materials must be
hear at. hand or be easily obtain
able: markets for products must
ha near or easily' reached: - de
mand for manufactured products
must be great enough and perma
nent enough; or easily made so,
to consume the output;' both
skilled and unskilled labor must
be present or readily obtainable,
These are fundamental condi
tions and must exist with all they
suggest as adequate transporta
tion facilitiesr-before manufac
t urine projects may be under
taken with any reasonable hope
of success.
Oregon has had many instances
of failure, and loss because one or
more of these conditions have
been overlooked or ignored by
those attempting to establish
manufacturing enterprises. At
tempts to establish the manufac;
ture of woolen goods lwa been
prolific of loss and disheartening
failure. This has been ascribe9
to "bad business management"
when in truth tha management
was blameless. The cause of
failure was because uome of the
conditions necessary to success
had been disregarded..
Oregon is'yetayoung state.
Considering that in truth she has
had to fly with her own wings
she has made remarkable pro
gress in establishing and devel
oping manufacturing enterprises.
Naturally attention was first
given to the development of the
lumber interests. What has been
done on this line makes a show
ing which is most creditable to
the energy and wisdom of those
engaged in that trade.
Other lines of manufactures
will follow, presently. Indeed
some important manufacturing
projects are already firmly estab
lished and well on the way to
larger things and wider success.
But, for all- this, . Oregon has
other aid better resources than
her manufacturing possibilitieii.
Tnese invite and should receive
the attention of our people, for
it is to the development of these
possibilities our people must look
for the acquisition of competency
and contentment and happiness.
Of all branches of Mental
Philosophy that which treats of
the phenomena of dreams has re
ceived least general attention.
From away back in the dim past
dreams have been regarded as
manifestations of the supernat
ural. Ignorance and her child
Superstition taught men to re
gard dreams as communications
from the gods or from the spirits
of departed friends or mayhaps
enemies. These dreams were
sweet and pleasant when the
gods were in good humor or lov
ing friends communicated with
the dreamer, or horrible night
mares when the gods were angry
with or the spirits of malicious
enemies seized upon the sleeper.
TCvpti in this enlightened aire !
many persons regard dreams as
solemn admonitions, faithful pre?
monitions or diabolic temptations
to evil. ' ', " ';
But there is no sort of dream
which-: may net be; easiljfiex
plained by laws which govern
mental processes, or; the opera
tion of the mind under given con
ditions. -When J.he cause of a
dream is once determined the re
maining phenomenoffiseasy :of
explanation. . . ' ... ;,.'! -,
One of the peculiarities of the
mind in a dream state . is that it
forms no correct, nor nearly cor
rect estimate of time. ; An Eng
lish gentleman gave us this inci
dent from his own experience:
He had long contemplated a tour
of a portion of this, country and
had "carefully planned ms itin
erary - He had read much to pre
pare himself -for 'understanding
things he expected to see during
his travels. He finally dreamed he
crossed the Atlantic, made, the
contemplated 'tour, and after an
absence of six months rejoined
his friends in England when he
awoke.. , He had not been asleep
to exceed ten minutes.
No one ever dreams of sound
or a noise, wnen one dreams ne
hears a noise there has been .' a
noise and - the cause of it should
be promptly sought, especially if
it be of crackling sound such as
made -by burning woodwork.
We have heard soldiers relate of
dreaming they were in battle.
They saw charging troops, the
slain and wounded, bursting
shell, hurtling shot and all usual
incidents of. fierce fight except
ing sound. They bad not heard
so much as a a shout or pistol
shot, '
1 It is not a profitless pursuit to
chase dreams back to their cause
for then we may avoid the cause
and, maugre the gods, lie down,
to "balmy sleep," which is by
far better than pleasant dreams.
Children often waken from
dreams all in a nervous fright.
Do not desist until you find the
cause. It may be improper food,
too much or too difficult of diges
tion. It may be caused by im
proper clothing or unnatural po
sition while sleeping or by fright
received during waking hours.
Indigestion, pickles, clam
chowder and late dinners or sup
pers are the demons and malevo
lent enemies that give us bad
dreams and horrid nightmares.
"To rest with eaee all night
Let your supper be light."
A good appetite, a perfect di
gestion, simple diet, a body and
mind not wearied but healthfully
tired by work or exercise, "a
conscience devoid of offence to
ward God - and man," a. fitting
couch and benificent' nature will
give ".us sleep unbroken by
wierd dreams. '

Fred L. Kent, professor of dairv hus

at Corvallis. was in Albany yesterday for
a lew hour on bis war t .Salem Where
be went to attend , to some business in
connection with the statistical -depart,

over to the new incumbent, W L. Crissey
of Portland, who was elected to that
place by tbe dairj men at their -last meet
ing.' Mr. Kent was elected !o the presi
dency of the association and has already
begun to plan for . the l1 mee.iog of
that body, which promises to he fuily as
large and important as the odb recently
held in Portland. He served as secretary
of the association for a dozen yenrs and
daring that time was most faithful in his
work for the bet terment of the dairy in

J. A. Shepard, the corresponding sec
retary of the Willamette Valley Develop
ment League, is engaged in the collection
of a thousand facta about the products of
the eight C3unUes of the valley. These
1000 statements are to be made in each
case by the producer himself, so much
pe.- sere, on suoh a product sold for such
a price. This region can be made to
show the greatest variety ef products and
the richest yield of any part of the world.
Each county is entitled to have 125 state
ments in the collection, and at least 100,-
OJ0 copies of these statements are to bi
circulated in the east in the next 6ixty
days before tbe next colonist rates are
nut into effect in March. These state-
nent8 coming from the producers them-
selves and coming from each of the eight
counties will result in the location of at
least 50,000 homeseekers in our valley in
the next year. Send y our it atem en t of a
ti; crop, or yield of fruit or wool clip or
profit from horses,' stock or dairying to
J. R. Shepard at Salem. . This section of
the state cannot be surpassed in this line
of information and we want a OOd repre
sentation in the collection of facta for ad
vertising! the most 'productive region in

Nearly 4,000 letters addressed to Santa

The Horse Sells Largely , on Look.
Feed to a Finish., -
"Butter fat and satin smooth" would
be an excellent Ideal for the man who
Is raising a horse for sale. .The gist of
all the teaching of those who are 'try
ing to advise others how to fit their
horses for market Is "have them fat."
Of course it la presumed the horses
are essentially .good ones that is, prop
erly formed, sound and kind according
to at least the average standard In
horseflesh. Some young farmers who
have been led to raising horses by the
exceedingly tempting prices of which
so much has been heard for awhile
past now complain that, having raised
the animals, they cannot get the prices.
but are compelled to sell for much less
than they expected to receive.
The man on the farm sometimes falls
to realize that In the raising of horses
for sale he has now to compete with
the ' "horse feeder,"" who Is just as
genuine If not so extensive a proposi
tion as -the "beef feeder" and the
"swine feeder." If a farmer wants to
get the notable prices that are obtained
by the men who make a business of
putting horses into attractive condi
tion for marcet he must give his ani
mals the same exact, painstaking care
and scientific and liberal feeding that
the latter da He should try to get on
to the little wrinkles of management
that aid In Improving the appearance
of a horse and putting a finish on him.
In short, remember there Is no ani
mal that sells more upon "looks" than
a horse and act accordingly.
And, although "fat" la caned for. It
must be the fat that goes with strong
muscle, firm flesh and . flexible skin,
and perhaps "well fleshed" would be a
better term.
If yon are producing any sort of
horses for market and long prices, feed
and fit to perfection with these in
view. If for quick and easy local sale
or to provide the professional finisher
with material in the rough, that Is an
other story, and there may be money
In It too. On the whole, pretty nearly-L
everything in the horse line brings gen
erous value nowadays, and extraordi
nary quality . means corresponding
A Fine Arab Filly.
The photograph reproduced In the
cut is, as Country Gentleman explains,
one sent to that journal by Randolph
Huntington and is a portrait of the
yearling Arab filly Queen Esther, in-
tensely inbred to Leopr-.rrt r.rA Nnn-r.i
as well as to Henry Clay, bhe is by
Naaman (AnazehNazIi), out Of Clay
Miriam, a mare also sired by Naaman
and whose dam was Clay Mocha, by
Abdul Hamid II., by Leopard. Queen
Esther was foaled April 1, 1906, and
the photograph was taken the day she
was a year old. She was bred and Is
owned by Frederick H. Cleaveland of
Poughkeepsie and, Mr. Hunticjton
says, "would pass for a pure Arab In
any country, a beautiful and intelligent
fliiy." ;'
Big Carriage Horses.
As foreign conditions have their ef
fect on the horse industry in this coun
try, the views of a writer in a London
paper are of some interest here. This
correspondent claims that the wealthy
Jobmasters of London are unable to
let or hire anything but big carriage
horses, and in the absence of home
breds they buy them in America or on
the continent of Europe. The number
they now require could be expressed
in thousands, and the checks they send
would amount to something more like
millions. He thinks breeders need have
no doubt about future markets for any
stylish, full sized carriage horses they
my be enabled to. pot upon the Lon
don market. In advocating the produc
tion of such full sized carriage horses
as now appear in the parks and fash
ionable streets of London he does not
disparage the, fashionable hackney
which adorns the elegant victoria, but
wants the larger type to be bred In
equal numbers.
Waste of Energy.
The Merinos and their grades on ac
count of their dense fleeces stand expo
sure to rains and storms better than
the open fleeced coarse wool sheep, and
yet it pays better to house any kind of
sheep during storms than' to take the
chances of catching cold and being
bothered, with snuffles all winter. It re
quires a waste of energy to withstand
the disagreeable conditions that are
sure to follow exposure to storms.-r-Natlonal
How to Feed Out Silage.
Owing to the constant contact of the
air with the top layer of silage It Is
necessary to remove a horizontal layer
of silage to a depth of not less than
one and one-half inches daily to pre
vent any from spoiling. If this fact
Is kept in mind when building a silo
Its' diameter can be made such as to
make possible the feeding of a layer
of this depth daily with the amount of
live stoek on hanja. John Michels.

Are You Tired, Nervous

Nervousness and sleeplessness are ns
nally due to the fact that the nerves are
not fed on properly nourishing blood;
thoy are starved norvos. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery makes pure, '
rich blood, and thereby the nerves are .
froperly nourished and all the organs ot.
he bod v are run as smoothly as machin
ery which runs in oil. In this way you
feel clean, strong and strenuous you are
toned up and invigorated, and you are
good for a whole lot of physical or mental
work. Best of all, the strength and In
crease in vitality and health are lastlnn.

greatly injures the svatcin. One may foci .
